Sergio Garcia has been a golfer in the wilderness for some time but the Spaniard is starting to get back to the form that made him one of the highest profile players in the European game.
The 32-year-old managed to win the rain-delayed Wyndham Championship on Monday to earn a place in the European Ryder Cup side, who will face the Americans at the Medinah Country Club next month.
Garcia will be delighted to have earned a place in the side, especially since he missed out on the Ryder Cup two years ago at Celtic Manor, when Europe enjoyed a fine victory over the USA.
The golfer, who is yet to win a major in his career so far, was delighted to secure a win on American soil this week which will stand him in good stead for the biggest event on the golfing calendar, which all gets underway on September 28.
Garcia, who will place under his countryman and skipper Jose Maria Olazabal, said: “I am proud of the way I played coming in.
“Obviously I won a couple of times last year in Europe, but it’s been a while here (in the United States) and it feels great.
“I hit some really good shots and made some nice four or five-footers when I had to. I’m very happy about the way the week has gone.”
Garcia certainly has the experience to add to the Team Europe squad and hopefully he will be inspired by the occasion in Illinois next month, to produce the kind of golf that brought him success at the Wyndham Championship.
